Ameliorate Transforming Body Cream


As a child, Nic suffered with Keratosis Pilaris (chicken skin) and always shyed away from T-Shirts in the summer to avoid others seeing or brushing against her arms.

 Keratosis Pilaris causes the skin, often on the backs of the arms, to feel rough, bumpy and mottled in colour. It is caused when the outer keratinised cells of the skin haven’t shed effectively and instead are blocking the hair follicles. To relieve the symptoms the dead skin cells need to be removed either through exfoliation or active ingredients that are applied through skincare.

 We have recently been testing out Ameliorate Transforming Body cream over areas, which need a little extra help where traditional body creams are failing.

About the cream..

 It’s a nourishing oil-rich cream packed full of active ingredients. Lactic acid, which is an AHA and is a derivative of milk, is an exfoliating ingredient, which will help to remove the dead skin cells blocking the follicles. Milk protein and Sweet Almond nourish and hydrate whilst Squalane acts as a natural emollient, coating the skin without causing it to feel excessively greasy.

How does it feel?

 It feels rich and creamy on initial application but quickly feels slightly oilier as it is massaged in to the skin. It does have a slight film finish to it but this also provides a beautiful silky sheen to the skin.
 This cream is not for those who enjoy a high fragrance from the body products. The smell is not great in my opinion, it’s quite indescribable, but I wasn’t a fan. I like to use it before bedtime so that the scent isn’t as strong by the time morning comes around.

 This is not your standard fluffy body cream. It works hard and produces great results. Be warned, if you have shaved your legs or have any small cuts, you will know about it. If I use after shaving my legs, I feel like I have fallen into a load of stinging nettles for about a minute. The feeling passes really quickly and it’s not painful, just really tingly. I’m sure it’s probably not recommended for use post shave!
 The overall finish is excellent and a cream I will continue to use. I have also incorporated the foot and hand cream into my regime also. It’s nourishing, hydrating and skin feels so smooth afterwards. I like the finish it leaves on the skin and over time I have seen a vast improvement on dry skin or areas of Keratosis Pilaris.
 There are other variations available from Ameliorate so check them out here if you are on the hunt for a treatment body cream.
The transforming Body cream is £27.50 and available here.



  1. I have used the body lotion from the same brand. It’s very effective, but the smell is awful (high content of urea, so it smells as if you had urinary incontinence). In my humble opinion, Iso-Urea by LRP is even more effective and the smell is not quite as bad.

  2. I absolutely adore this stuff! I have Keratosis Pilaris on the tops of my arms and also a small patch on the tops of my thighs...after only two weeks of use it was gone! I only apply to problem areas and use a different cream for the rest of my body. This is great for use under arms and bikin line if you're prone to shaving rash/ingrown hairs!
